What Makes a True St. Louisan

St. Louis Magazine released its list of “101 Things Every St. Louisan Must Do,” which includes a handful of South County experiences. What’s on your personal list?

St. Louis Magazine’s “101 Things Every St. Louisan Must Do” isn’t for tourists. The magazine attempts to distinguish the difference between a St. Louis resident and a true St. Louisan… and provides a handy checklist of quintessential experiences should you feel you haven’t been living life in the Lou to the fullest.

Some items are more obvious than others—like skipping work to attend Opening Day at Busch Stadium, or taking a brewery tour. The list includes several experiences that are unique to South County and its surrounding areas:

  • Feed the pygmy goats at Grant's Farm
  • Explore Laumeier Sculpture Park
  • Explore Jefferson Barracks
  • Escape to Shaw Nature Reserve

Must visit St. Louis Botanical Gardens, especially when in full bloom, and trek the Japanese Garden.
